Ok... So I know that the Bushmaster M17S is not the most popular bullpup out there but I'm trying to turn mine into something better than what the factory put out.
what i am doing is, first and foremost, finding a way to simultaneously provide myself with usable iron sight and bring the level at which my ACOG clone sits down about an inch and a half.
I've read that the factory iron sights are only supposed to be effective out to 25 yards and personal experience tells me that this is an over- estimation. (they are GARBAGE)
My solution to that was this:
I was planning on buying the top rail of a G36C (or at least that basic model of gun) and having that replace what sits on top of the bull pup now. (obviously I will also have to come up with an answer for a new charging handle but that's not what we are talking about) The rail that I have found (online) has iron signs built onto it.
so the question here is this:
Would it be possible to attach one of these rails to the weapon or is it an odd enough shape that it would be too impractical?
I realize that this means that there needs to be someone out there who is familiar with both the weapon and the part that I am referring to but I can hope right?
Also if anyone out there has any better ideas I'm open>
